Welcome to Promise South Salt Lake
The South Salt Lake Mayor’s Office, with the support of South Salt Lake Recreation Department, Police Department, Community Development Department, and Urban Livability Department works with United Way and a broad variety of partners to provide dynamic, highly specialized community and out-of-school-time programming with academic and prevention focus at 14 neighborhood centers throughout the city.
We articulate our work as promises representing our highest hopes for our community. Based on very specific research and models of other successful communities, Mayor Wood and the Promise South Salt Lake Leadership Team formulated goals—specifically to accommodate South Salt Lake children, families, residents, and seniors.
Promise South Salt Lake works to implement specialized strategies and program maps based on relevant data, model/evidence-based curriculums, expand learning and positive youth development opportunities supporting academic, physical, civic, social, and emotional success. Activities in South Salt Lake include high intensity, literacy-focused afterschool programs, structured recreation and service opportunities, intentional reciprocal cultural opportunities, and a broad range of enriching experiences utilizing a cradle to career continuum improving educational and developmental youth outcomes.
